It is a fiasco. Serena literally wins slams by overpowering her opponents and barely running at all.

That graph is very sloppy... How come the distance between 2005-2009 is about 2,5 times th distance between 2009-2012? And why does Federer have less ranking points than Nadal and Djokovic pre 2005?

If you take a parallell view on the Women's side, tennis was closest to perfect in 1985 with Navratilova & Evert managing more points between them that Federer & Nadal ever did.

Re: Roger : We are best ever, The four of us? Thatís a really difficult call.

if you look at the highest number of matches played against each other by top-players, there are two trios which stand aside for the longevity on top : Fed-Nadal-Djokovic and Connors-McEnroe-Lendl.

Add Murray on one side and Wilander on the other side and you have quattuors which lasted long on top as well.

Lendl-Wilander-Edberg-Becker are a little bit behind.

Connors-Borg-McEnroe was very strong, probably the strongest with Fed-Nadal-Djokovic, but lasted less long.

useless old guy

Who would be fool enough to believe you are best four.


GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Borna Coric will be No 1 by May 2016
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2016

Yeah Gluten-free just wouldn't cut it back then, only Federer-free would have had similar success... lol

For a person who worries about arrogant people in general, you spend a big amount of time talking about how other players suck so bad and how humble Federer was despite all evidence that showed Fed's sociopath personality.

federer wanted to admit that his tennis was the best ever, but he decided to placate sampras, and insult agasssi

even nadal wasn't spared from his verbals, being accused of cheating, one dimensional, too physical for the arrogant swiss

he spent years insulting murray before he got put in his place after being cheeky one time too many
